Heritage Buildings

Return to all services

We specialise in preserving and adapting New Zealand heritage assets to meet your evolving needs, while also safeguarding our nation's rich cultural heritage.

When providing advice or designing solutions, our team employs a range of sensitive strategies to ensure that crucial features and elements are retained during a building’s or monument’s life. This ensures that its historic fabric is preserved for future generations to enjoy. Our historic building conservation work includes assessing archaeological sites and maintaining, repairing and refurbishing well-known national buildings, monuments, and historic infrastructure as well as heritage houses and commercial buildings.

Our knowledge and understanding of global conservation charters and national heritage protections mean we can help you navigate the framework of heritage planning and protections in Aotearoa New Zealand and to assist in developing best practice repair and redevelopment strategies.
